Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has 'a great chance' to be on the roster to begin the season, according to sources via Howard Eskin of 94 WIP Radio. Per Eskin, Ertz has been working out at the team facility for the last two weeks.
Huddle Up: It is looking more likely by the day that Ertz will be in Philadelphia for the opener. If he remains on the roster much longer - and does not get traded as has been widely speculated - it will likely be enough to keep Dallas Goedert from becoming anything more than a low-end TE1 in 2021.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert's 46 catches and 524 receiving yards in 2020 both ranked second on the team, and he will 'be a focal point' of the offense in 2021, according to an NFC executive.
Huddle Up: With Zach Ertz expected to be on the way out, Goedert should be the primary tight end and one of the main targets in the passing attack. Unless Ertz happens to stick around, Goedert looks like a TE1 option.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is still a trade option for the Buffalo Bills at this point, in the opinion of The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci.
Huddle Up: Ertz is not expected to stay with the Eagles, and the Bills could use an upgrade at tight end. He would have a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues if he joins the Bills.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard is on the roster bubble in training camp, in the opinion of ESPN's Tim McManus who notes that since Howard reg-signed with the team in April, the Eagles have drafted Kenneth Gainwell and signed free agent Kerryon Johnson.
Huddle Up: Howard had a three-year run as a top-20 fantasy back from 2016-18, but since leaving the Bears, he's found himself caught up in committees -- and often on the wrong end. With Philly veteran Boston Scott also in the mix competing for a spot behind starter Miles Sanders, Howard faces even more of an uphill battle this summer, and he doesn't belong on the majority of fantasy rosters outside of dynasty leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was credited with a bad throw on 26.7 percent of his pass attempts in 2020 - the highest rate for any quarterback with at least 125 pass attempts last season - per Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: It is important to note that "bad throws" aren't always the quarterback's fault, but it is a number that needs to come down at least five percent - Lamar Jackson's bad throw percentage in 2020 was 17.6 - for Philadelphia to feel like it might have a long-term answer at quarterback. Nevertheless, Hurts' athleticism should make him a serviceable low-end fantasy QB1 option if the new coaching staff gives him the freedom to run as much as the previous regime did at the end of last season.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz likely will not be a trade target for the Tennessee Titans, in the opinion of's Jim Wyatt.
Huddle Up: Ertz should be traded before the start of the regular season and can be at least a high-end No. 2 fantasy tight end. Anthony Firkser is in line to be the starter for the Titans and probably will be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end.
Posted 6/01/2021 3:01 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has had at least three teams calling about trading for him, according to sources. His release is unlikely.
Huddle Up: Ertz will be a midrange TE1 wherever he lands, but leaving could give him some upside.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jalen Reagor told reporters Tuesday, May 25, that he will play in the slot and 'move around a great deal' in 2021.
Huddle Up: Reagor played mostly on the perimeter as a rookie. How much this impacts him from a fantasy perspective on what figures to be a Jalen Hurts-centric offense is up for debate, but the TCU product's athleticism should help him in the slot and improve upon what was a mostly disappointing pro debut. Reagor's biggest obstacle is the arrival of DeVonta Smith, who will almost certainly be featured in the passing game and should be primed for 100-plus targets right away.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz did not report for the start of offseason workouts Monday, May 17, and is expected to stay away until his situation is resolved, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Ertz was expected to be traded or released at this point of the offseason but is still on the Eagles roster. He will have more fantasy value if he joins a new team and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end depending on the situation.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts enters his second season as the team's No. 1 quarterback, and general manager Howie Roseman is eager to see what he does with the opportunity. 'Certainly you're judging him off of four NFL starts, in a tough situation with all the injuries that we had,' Roseman said during a recent interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'We want to see him grab the job and kind of run with it, and see what you do over a period of time.'
Huddle Up: Hurts averaged an impressive 27.8 fantasy points per outing over those four starts -- the Eagles' final four games of the 2020 regular season. That stretch included a pair of 300-yard passing games, but his legs also played a major role as he rushed for 272 yards and three TDs during that span. And that rushing element primarily is why Hurts is a low-end QB1 fantasy consideration entering drafts this offseason.

To update, Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson remains with the team despite a recent report that he will be released, Lions general manager Brad Holmes said Thursday, May 6. Holmes said the situation is a 'work in progress.'
Huddle Up: A one-time fantasy up-and-comer, Johnson has fallen out of favor in the Motor City, and his "stay" likely only means the Lions are trying to trade him to get at least something in return for the 2018 second-round pick.
Posted 4/30/2021 1:35 am GMT
Alabama WR DeVonta Smith was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Smith will be reunited with former college quarterback Jalen Hurts, and with Philadelphia's receiving corps currently lacking a go-to weapon, he could become the No. 1 option as a rookie. He should see enough work to warrant WR3 consideration.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz reportedly has 'six or seven teams in the running' for his services - including the Indianapolis Colts - and there is a belief he will be traded during draft weekend, according to Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline.
Huddle Up: Ertz is on the downside of his career after turning 30 last year, but Carson Wentz has shown a fondness for targeting the tight end position over his career - particularly Ertz. Indianapolis would present Ertz with one of the best landing spots for his fantasy stock, but his days of being a TE1 may be over regardless of where he ends up.
Posted 4/21/2021 4:30 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was not named the starter by head coach Nick Sirianni, who said he isn't naming any starters and wants competition at all positions.
Huddle Up: Hurts is the guy. He'll be a risk/reward option as a midrange QB1 in fantasy.
Posted 4/16/2021 1:51 pm GMT
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard's one-year deal has a $990,000 base salary and no guaranteed money. Howard's deal is a veteran salary benefit deal that counts $850,000 against the salary cap.
Huddle Up: Howard will be in the RB5 mix in fantasy drafts.
Posted 4/07/2021 9:20 pm GMT
Free-agent RB Jordan Howard (Eagles) is re-signing with the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year contract, according to a source Wednesday, April 7. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Howard may vulture some goal-line work from RB Miles Sanders and could emerge as a streaming option later in the season, but he won't carry any fantasy value heading into the 2021 season.
Posted 4/01/2021 7:35 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles exclusive rights free-agent Boston Scott signed his one-year tender offer Thursday, April 1. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Scott probably will be the No. 2 running back for the Eagles next season and will see a handful of touches each week. He can be a handcuff to Miles Sanders but will not have a lot of value in most leagues.
Posted 3/16/2021 9:41 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz has received permission to seek a trade to another team, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Several teams will have interest in Ertz, and he should be a starter with his new team. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end depending on his situation.
Posted 3/14/2021 7:05 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz is a player the Eagles to not plan on releasing this offseason, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Ertz is growing frustrated with the Eagles because several teams have shown interest in him, but the Eagles have not looked to move him yet.
Huddle Up: Ertz has posted disappointing numbers over the last few seasons but there is a chance that he will be playing for a new team in 2021. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some leagues depending on his situation.
Posted 3/08/2021 6:16 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ankle) underwent ankle surgery after the season.
Huddle Up: Ertz is expected to be traded or released this offseason, so he will have to learn a new offense this season. He has struggled over the last few seasons but was one of the top tight ends a few years ago. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some fantasy leagues depending on his situation.
Posted 3/08/2021 2:59 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has been prioritized this offseason by owner Jeffrey Lurie. The team isn't unanimous on Hurts as the starter, but Lurie wants the team to build around him for next season instead of creating competition.
Huddle Up: Hurts played like a midrange QB1 last year, but there are a lot of moving pieces around him. He'll be a boom-or-bust option at the position in fantasy.
Posted 3/04/2021 4:31 am GMT
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts had nine fumbles in 2020, including six in four games as a starter.
Huddle Up: To be fair, dual-threat quarterbacks like Kyler Murray, Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen were also among the players with nine or more fumbles, but Hurts amassed his total in significantly fewer snaps. Likely Philadelphia's starter in 2021, it is going to become a problem if Hurts continues to fumble at his current clip. For now, he is a high-upside QB2 because of his running ability.
Posted 3/01/2021 1:35 am GMT
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert averaged 3.7 receptions and 40.0 receiving yards and didn't score a touchdown in three games with QB Jalen Hurts as the starter.
Huddle Up: On the plus side, Goedert did have 17 targets in those same three games, so Hurts wasn't ignoring him. If Zach Ertz trade rumors turn out to be true, Goedert will have enough more than enough upside to target as a potential TE1.
Posted 2/18/2021 9:46 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job, but the team plans to add another quarterback to compete with Hurts during training camp.
Huddle Up: Hurts played well after taking over the job and should hold on to the job if he has a solid training camp. He will be at least a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted 2/18/2021 5:30 pm GMT
Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is the team's projected 2021 starter with the trade of Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Feb. 18.
Huddle Up: Hurts certainly had his late-season moments taking over as a rookie last year with eight total TDs, including three rushing, in four starts. And unless the Eagles pursue another starting-caliber QB this offseason via free agency, trade or the draft, it'll be Hurts' show from Day 1 in 2021. Value him as a mid-level QB2 with ample upside for now.
Posted 2/14/2021 12:51 am GMT
Updating a previous story, the Indianapolis Colts have discussed acquiring additional players from the Philadelphia Eagles with QB Carson Wentz and could look to add TE Zach Ertz in a potential trade, according to Mike Kaye of Saturday, Feb. 13.
Huddle Up: The Colts' thin pass-catching group would allow Ertz to retain the sizable target share he had with the Eagles and could help him stay a top-five fantasy tight end.
